If you own or are considering buying GreenPan cookware, you might be wondering:
Is GreenPan cookware oven safe?
The short answer is yes. GreenPan cookware is oven safe up to at least 320°F, but several collections can handle up to 600°F.
As a general rule, GreenPan cookware with stainless steel handles is oven-safe up to 600°F. Cookware with silicone-wrapped or plastic handles is only oven-safe up to 320°F.
The one exception is the Mayflower collection, which has wood handles and is not safe in the oven at any temperature.
But, before you start cooking with your GreenPan pots and pans in the oven, it’s essential to know the maximum oven-safe temperature of your specific cookware.
In this quick guide, I provide a chart with the oven-safe temperatures for every GreenPan collection. You’ll also learn whether the lids are oven safe and the risks of broiling.
Finally, I’ll provide a few tips and precautions for using GreenPan cookware in the oven.

Oven-Safe Temperature of Each GreenPan Collection
All GreenPan pots and pans are oven safe (except the Mayflower collection), but the oven-safe temperature varies by collection.
In the chart below, you’ll find the oven-safe temperatures of each GreenPan collection.
|GreenPan Collection||Type||Oven-Safe Temperature|
|GreenPan Valencia Pro||Hard-anodized||600°F|
|GreenPan Venice Pro||Stainless steel||600°F|
|GreenPan Venice Pro Noir||Stainless steel||600°F|
|GreenPan Chatham Stainless Steel||Stainless steel||600°F|
|GreenPan Chatham Hard-Anodized||Hard-anodized||600°F|
|GreenPan Paris Pro||Hard-anodized||600°F|

Are GreenPan Glass Lids Oven-Safe?
Yes, all of GreenPan’s cookware lids are oven-safe. However, the exact oven-safe temperature varies depending on the kind of lid.
The universal tempered glass lids included in most GreenPan collections are safe at temperatures up to 425°F.
Other glass lids, such as those in the Levels collection, are only safe up to 350°F.
Are GreenPan Pans Broiler-Safe?
All cookware rated oven safe up to 600°F is also labeled “broiler-safe” by GreenPan.
In other words, the Valencia Pro, Venice Pro, Venice Pro Noir, Searsmart, Reserve, Padova, Chatham, Paris Pro, Lima, Swift, Canterbury, and Treviso collections are all broiler safe.
The other GreenPan collections are not broiler safe. Again, please note that the Mayflower collection isn’t oven or broiler-safe.
None of the glass lids are broiler-safe, so make sure you remove them before turning on the broiler.
Even if the product label says a pan is broiler-safe, it’s still risky. Every broiler is different, and you don’t necessarily know how hot yours gets.
Check your oven guide to verify your broiler’s temperatures and cross-reference these with the pan’s temperature rating.
Based on my experience testing dozens of cookware brands, I would not recommend using GreenPan, or any non-stick pan, under the broiler.
Direct exposure to flames and extremely high heat will degrade the coating and decrease the cookware’s lifespan. Instead, use a cast iron, carbon steel, or stainless steel pan from another brand (all GreenPan cookware is non-stick).
GreenPan regularly releases new collections and discontinues old ones. So, if you didn’t see your collection in the chart, here’s how you can confirm the maximum oven-safe temperature.
The steps are as follows:
Step 1: Go to the GreenPan website.
Step 2: In the navigation bar at the top of the page, click on “Shop” and click “All Collections.”
Step 3: Find your collection on the page.
Step 4: Select a specific product.
Step 5: Go to the “specs” tab in the product description.
Step 6: Scroll down until you find the oven-safe temperature.
Although GreenPan cookware is oven safe, it’s essential to read the manufacturer’s warnings on its packaging and use caution when using it in the oven.
Here are some tips to keep you safe.
- Never Overheat the Pan: Avoid going about the maximum oven-safe temperatures. High heat can weaken the cookware and degrade the non-stick coating.
- Avoid Sudden or Drastic Temperature Changes: Sudden shifts in temperature can cause thermal shock and warp the pan. Never take a cold pan from the refrigerator and put it in a piping hot oven, and never take a hot pan from the oven and place it on a cold surface or rinse it with cold water. In both scenarios, the pan’s material will expand and contract unevenly, causing it to warp.
- Always Use Oven Mitts or Potholders: Keep in mind that all parts of the cookware will be hot when you remove it from the oven. Make sure the handle faces a wall or place an oven mitt over it to remind yourself not to touch it.
- Remove the Lids: Although certain GreenPan collections are oven safe up to 600°F, the universal tempered glass lids are only oven safe up to 425°F. If your recipe calls for higher than 425°F, remember to remove the lid. Reminder: lids that come with the Levels collection are only safe up to 350°F.
- Pay Attention: Food cooks slower in the oven than on the stove, but that doesn’t mean you can set it and forget it. Keep a close eye on your food to ensure it doesn’t burn or boil over in the oven.
Bottom line — GreenPan cookware is oven safe, but the maximum oven-safe temperatures vary by collection. Besides the Mayflower collection, all pots and pans are oven safe up to at least 320°F.
Keep in mind:
- The glass lids included with each collection are oven-safe, but the oven-safe temperature will be lower than it is for the pan itself.
- GreenPan cookware labeled safe to temperatures up to 600°F is broiler-safe, but you should check your oven manual to check how hot your broiler gets.
- You can find the oven-safe temperature for each piece of GreenPan cookware on the company’s website –– look for it under the heading “specs” on each product page. If you can’t find the information for your specific model, contact GreenPan customer service.
- Overheating a GreenPan pan can damage the ceramic non-stick coating.
- Exercise care when cooking with oven-safe pans, and make sure you have a system in place to avoid burning yourself and warping your pans.
Hopefully, this guide has given you all the information you need to use and enjoy your GreenPan collection to the fullest.
